1-3) Nobara
Take has been watching Kamita-san single-handedly take care of his young daughter Mone for quite a while now. When Kamita's wife finally shows her face at the shop only after Kamita has gone home, Take can't help but demand an explanation for why she'd abandon her family with such a great husband and daughter. But when Kamita's wife blurts out “because he told me he's gay!” it's definitely the last thing Take was expecting!

The first story is really cute, everything is okay there. On the other hand, the second story just had me fighting internally, a transgender person won't stop identifying with a certaing gender just because of who she or he likes. It just felt wrong for Mimi to have to let go of something so important because she fell for someone.

Loved the first story - significantly older and somewhat troubled uke, enthusiastic kid, strong and silent kind of seme.. they're my weaknesses!
Second story, on the other hand, was a big let down. Manga-ka seems to not to know enough about transgender or gender identity, so the story ended up being rather offensive.
Bluntly said, it's as if I(a girl who likes to be a girl and loves to have sex with men) at one point became a man physically, fell in love with exclusively bottom gay man and then by some miracle became a gay top man mentally. It really doesn't work this way. Noone can change DNA and brain anatomy by sheer willpower.

Well I'm disappointed. I loved the Nobara chapters but the first Mimi-kun on (the only one I can find) just killed the manga for me. I hate when authors write gender wrong, and being transsexual doesn't just change because you like a gay boy. If you were gender-fluid, agender, bigender, genderqueer, etc that's one thing but if you identify as a girl as Mimi seems to, it's not just something you can decide not to feel so you can date your gay crush. That's when you get over your stupid crush and move onto a straight boy.
The art took getting used to and it's not really good but it's not terrible. But the manga gets a 6 for Nobara, otherwise I'd be giving it a 3.
